The installation took slightly longer than expected in my 2013 Impreza STI. I made the right decision to completely remove the muffler and 4 pipe exhaust, which is easily detached from the rest of the exhaust system. I also ended up having to trim the bumper 1-5/8" x 4-1/2" instead of the recommended 4". Maybe the 2013 bumper is slightly lower. In all, the installation was relatively easy to do. I can now haul my mountain bike easily. 79581
I installed this hitch and the 5614kit for my trailer wiring on my 2013 wrx base model hatchback with the quad tip muffler. The hitch works like it should i pull my 14ft jon boat around with no problems. Installation wasnt bad but i work on cars for a living. If youre going to install solo the easiest way is to remove muffler completely and also remove rear bumper completely. I say this because two of the mounting points are to the back side of the rear bumper reinforcement beam. They mount horizontally the slightest twitch and the bolts provided will fall into the re-bar and youre not getting them back with the bumper on easily. They should provide some type of locking washer to keep the bolts from doing this. One that slides over bolt but does not easily come back off. Also with the bumper off you can keep test fitting and trimming the bumper more easily... I did not want a gaping hole in my bumper ( you cant install hitch until you make the cut out in the bumper.) after installed its fairly discreet no complaints there. As far as the wiring... If you have a 2013 wrx go ahead and take out the rear interior. There are no access holes in the trim panels for splicing the converter box wiring into your factory lights. I ran the power wire under the car through a rubber plug under the spare tire. You could just pop out the tail ligts and run all wires out of the car including the box, but if you want the majority of everything out of the elements theres really no super easy way for this paticular car, but the product itself works like a champ. Shipping was fast nothing was damaged and for a good price. Id use etrailer again. 67410
The installation could have been much faster if there were 4 fish wires instead of only 2. I managed to bump both of the forward fasteners into the frame and had to suck them out with magnets, pocket screwdrivers, and going to a U haul to buy another fish wire (the guy was nice enough to give me one). The fit so far seems good (took it for a spin around the block unloaded). 135605

This is my 4th hitch from Etrailer. I have yet to have one arrive in an intact box :). As another reviewer stated, it is much easier to remove the bumper cover for this install than struggle with the cramped spaces to fish the bolts for the bumper mounting points. It also makes trimming the bumper cover much easier. 196696

2014 Subaru WRX. It was a little more timely than I thought, but I am sure it is because of my inexperience. Everything worked as advertised! 2 things that made it easier and wasn't too hard: 1. Remove rear bumper, 2. remove muffler hangers. There are youtube vids for both of these. 144316

Hitch was delivered very quickly. Instructions were clear, and the hitch fit well. Rather than dropping the exhaust, I removed the muffler to gain better access. From a quick search, this sounds pretty typical. Fascia trimming wasn't excessive nor difficult (I used a soldering iron with a cutting tip). I'm very happy with the final result. 47265
Hitch installed very easily and is extremely secure. The fishwire system looks complicated in the instructions, but I found it to be very intuitive and it works great! Curt really thought this one through. Total install time for an amateur working alone was 1:45, but it was not particularly difficult. No drilling or filing required. 19775
The hitch installed easily with just 4 bolts. Only gripe is that you have to trim the bumper fascia; however, the detailed instructions come printed in color. I haven't been able use my accessories yet because the 1.25" to 2" adapter I got wobbles way too much for my application. The hitch itself is really solid. 229871

Fits perfectly! Some cutting required, but went very smoothly. Great instructions too. 43260
Works as advertised! I removed the bumper to install but I think you could work around it with an extra helper. It did make the bumper cutting easier I'm sure. It seems fairly sturdy but I haven't put a trailer on it yet. Overall a 9/10. 190631
Hitch fit perfectly on my Subaru and was a breeze to install following the instructions. I especially liked the premade fish wire for installation of the bolts. That feature made things so much easier. 34196

The hitch was delivered ahead of schedule. Installation was straight forward. This was the least expensive I could find and the only one that fits the Sti and new WRX. Thank you etrailer. 18305

Just received the hitch today. The amount of detail that went into the instructions is beyond what I was expecting. Can't wait to install it on my 2014 WRX STI. 112828
